What to do when the frost comes early and threatens your tomato plants

What to do when the frost comes early and threatens your tomato plants

If you love organic gardening like I do, few things may be as thrilling to you as watching your plants thrive and grow throughout the summer knowing that you will soon be harvesting those amazing fruits and vegetables to use in your favorite recipes. Most of us would also agree that few things are more discouraging than realizing that your precious plants have unexpectedly been affected by infestation, an unwelcome fungus or an early frost. This year,my garden was visited by an early frost. I was fortunate enough to be able to get my plants covered in time. Now I was left with the dilemma of what to do with all of the unripen tomatoes that I needed to quickly harvest. After adding green tomatoes to ever recipe that I could think of, I decided I that I would take this opportunity to conduct an experiment to see which of most commonly recommended methods for ripening (or slowing down the ripening process) really works best. Over the next few weeks, I will be reporting my findings. Please feel free to share any of your ideas or gardening tips with me too! Thank you! Mary Bann, The Healthy Home...
